    Best kitchen worktops

    Thank you JobAndKnock. I am not sure what sort of surface that laminate has. However, (elsewhere) I had a Formica laminate Worktop installed some years ago and it is still in use. Now, I will either look for that type of Worktop or consider steel. The existing Worktop is 3835 X 38 mm with...

    Best kitchen worktops

    Hi guys, I had a worktop fitted about 6 years ago and I am now renovating the property. It seems the base material is actually woodchip as in so many types of furniture. Need new worktop. I have done some searching and read reviews but find it difficult to make a choice as the best ones seem...

    Solvent Gloss over Solvent Primer

    Hello guys. Normally, I prime bare wood, undercoat, then gloss. I am now repainting previously painted surfaces. I just did not check this paint is primer. May be a silly question, but will gloss work well over the primer?. Thank you.

    Which Brand Vinyl Silk Emulsion

    Hello, I am redecorating and usually had good paints. Now I have been reading reviews of different brands and some are very much not recommended. Do anyone know of any good Magnolia Vinyl Silk?. Seems to me some are manufactured according to retailer's requirements, like baked beans, for example.

    TV/CCTV/NVR No signal

    Thank you, sparkymarka. Prior to my FIRST post, I had the TV and NVR linked by the HDMI cable. When I pressed the 'Source' button, 'No Signal' appeared. EXACTLY as I said in my FIRST post. It DID NOT give a Menu. It DID NOT show an onscreen label showing HDMI 1, or any HDMI. The only thing I...

    TV/CCTV/NVR No signal

    Thanks. On my Remote Control that button is marked 'Source'. That is the one I pressed, when I got the 'No Signal'. So, is the problem due to the Indoor Aerial?.
